FOR SEVERAL YEARS, BEGINNING IN THE LATE 90S, DESIGNERS LUCKY ENOUGH TO BE IN NEW ORLEANS AND HOUSTON WOULD MARK THEIR CALENDARS FOR TARA SHAW’S NEW SHIPMENT DATES. “MY DESIGN TEAM WOULD LITERALLY LINE UP WITH TAGS READY TO GET FIRST DIBS ON TARA’S LATEST SHIPMENT OF FINE ANTIQUES FROM EUROPE.” SAYS MILIEU EDITOR-IN-CHIEF AND DESIGNER PAMELA PIERCE.
TARA TOOK A HIATUS FROM THE SO CALLED “FLASH SALES”, BUT SHE IS RETURNING TO HER ROOTS AND MAKING A STATEMENT WITH HER UNLOADS, ALL THE WHILE HONORING THE DESIGN TRADE AND ITS QUEST FOR THE BEST!
SHANNON BOWERS, MILIEU EDITOR-AT-LARGE, CATCHES UP HERE WITH TARA JUST AS SHE IS UNLOADING A NEW SHIPMENT.
I am so grateful for vendors like you who protect and honor trade relationships. For our readers, I’d love to share your background and industry story as well as the exciting new direction you are taking with your “Flash” sales events for the trade.
I came from a trade background and have immensely enjoyed seeing items I have imported end up in fabulous locations.
